Generic Engineering of Communication Protocols - Current Experience and Future Issues

B. Geppert, F. Rößler

Proceedings of the 1st IEEE International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods, ICFEM'97, Hiroshima, Japan, 1997


We present an approach to the generic engineering of communication protocols, which combines patternbased software engineering with the formal description technique (FDT) SDL. Our approach has the potential to reduce the effort for protocol design and assures high quality of the resulting communication subsystem. Actually, we suggest to keep a pool of reusable SDL patterns, which use FDTs to describe generic solutions for recurring design problems. According to specific communication requirements a protocol designer can then select patterns, which are suitably adapted and finally composed to build part of the resulting protocol specification.
